Jeremy had the day off so we made a quick afternoon trip out to Legendary ponds. My main intention was to revisit a spot that I had found a few days prior and attack it with the fly rod.
Upon arriving I went to work with a black Wooley bugger and caught my first bass of the day on the fly. I continued and landed another, but then the bite went dead for a while so I switched to the spinning rod. I caught a couple more. Jeremy fished and on a couple of occasions we had double hook ups which was pretty great.
At one point I switched back to the fly rod but they were no longer wanting the WB. I looked through my flies and tossed out some streamers with no success. It was then I found a fly that I had yet to try.
Last winter Bryan Dale tied me a couple Golden Orioles, his personal creation. As he often did. The guy tied them for me for no charge, even though I offered repeatedly to pay. It is a heavy fly which is kind of difficult to toss out at first. Once I got a hang of it, I tossed it out and BAM! A nice little bass was on my line, thanks Bryan!! To date this is the largest bass I have caught on the fly. I was excited and as I tossed it out a couple more times I got a couple more strikes. Finally while playing what felt like a good sized bass, he won the fight and swam off with my fly in its mouth.
I had one more but I didn’t want to lose it so I switched back to my spinning rod. I ended up catching a couple more to end the day. Not a bad day at all!
Total fish: 10 Largemouth Bass
